Synergy Multi-Academy Trust comprises ten Norfolk schools serving children between the ages of 2 and 18. Our schools work collaboratively together to raise standards and provide education of the highest possible standard, offering the best of opportunities for pupils. The Trust was initially established in 2015. We believe that all of our schools have strengths and areas to develop, and that all can improve through sharing expertise and wisdom. The Trust understands that there will be excellent practice in each school, and that every school will be able to contribute to the development of the Trust as a whole.
Bawdeswell Community Primary School receives a Pupil Premium allocation of funding for each child who is entitled to receive Free School Meals or who has been entitled to receive them over the last six years as well as for any Looked After Children.
We are required to publish online information about how we have used the premium.
Although we work hard to make sure that we meet the educational needs of all pupils, we understand that vulnerable or socially disadvantaged pupils have particular needs. One of our key priorities is closing the gap between the performance of vulnerable pupils and that of others.
We keep track of the progress of all pupils to make sure they are fulfilling their potential. Over Key Stage 2 (Years 3-6 in 2014-2015) there was an expectation that most pupils made a minimum of two levels progress in English and Maths. We monitored this progress and acted by putting interventions in place if children seemed not likely to meet this goal.
The pupil premium report for 2020 is presented below.
